... SC consists of several nodes which can be called ''actors'' ( Gigler et al., 2002). Each actor is a character, a link of the chain, a part played by a performer. Fig. 2 shows the actors of a generic WSC, who are connected through material flows (represented by continuous lines) and information flows (represented by dotted lines). Even though different products have different customer requirements and cannot be satisfied by a single SC strategy, a generic representation of the WSC is presented, which ...

... The "responsiveness" category includes indices such as fill rate or customer's response time, while finally, the "food quality" category includes KPIs that evaluate the characteristics of the production system, environmental impact and marketing (Li et al., 2021). The analysis carried out by Garcia et al. (2012) aimed at measuring the logistics performance of a wine supply chain. As many food systems, a wine supply chain is a complex system, in that the nature of the product calls for the application of a mixed push/pull strategy; also, the number of players at the various levels is wide, involving difficulties in their relationships. ...

The study aims to delineate a framework for the measurement and evaluation of supply chain performance in the food sector. The proposed approach grounds on the well-known LARG (lean, agile, resilient, and green) perspectives, for which the relating literature is analysed, and the available metrics are reviewed with a specific focus on the food sector. This allows for the development of an appropriate performance measurement system for the food supply chain.
... Previous efforts have studied the wine supply chain holistically, focusing mainly on logistics performance indicators (Chandes et al. 2003;Garcia et al. 2012;Smit et al. 2017;Díaz-Reza et al. 2018;Varas et al. 2020b) and sustainability issues (Cholette and Venkat 2009;Rugani et al. 2013;Varsei and Polyakovskiy 2017;Ponstein et al. 2019;Fragoso and Figueira 2020). In all wine supply chain stages, operations research models and methodologies have been used to improve efficiency and reduce costs (Moccia 2013). ...

Horizontal collaboration is a strategy that has increasingly been used for improving supply chain operations. In this paper, we analyze the benefits of using a collaborative approach when optimally planning the wine grape harvesting process. Particularly, we assess how labor and machinery collaborative planning impacts harvesting costs. We model cooperation among wineries as a coalitional game with transferable costs for which the characteristic function vector is computed by solving a new formulation for planning the wine grape harvesting. In order to obtain stable coalitions, we devise an optimization problem that incorporates both rationality and efficiency conditions and uses the Gini index as a fairness criterion. Focusing on an illustrative case, we develop several computational experiments that show the positive effect of collaboration in the harvesting process. Moreover, our computational results reveal that the results depend strongly on the fairness criteria used. The Gini index, for example, favors the formation of smaller coalitions compared to other fairness criteria such as entropy.
... In order to showcase a more realistic case study of the agrifood sector, we have considered a wine supply chain network. Although a typical wine supply chain may consist of suppliers, wineries, bottling plants, distribution centers, and demand points [59], this strategic study includes three discrete echelons: (i) suppliers (i.e., vine growers), (ii) manufacturing sites, where wine making/ageing and bottling are taking place, and (iii) markets, in which regional warehousing/distribution centers fulfil the bottled wine demand of nearby points ( Figure 2). In order to build the OR model, a multi-objective MILP methodology was employed, including both continuous (i.e., quantity-related) and binary (i.e., location-or mode-related) variables [60]. ...

As agriculture and industry exploit more than 90% of the global freshwater resources, water overuse and degradation have emerged as critical socio-environmental challenges for both nations and corporations. In this context, the water footprint concept was introduced in order to quantify the freshwater consumption and pollution of a territory or across a product's life cycle. As research on water management in supply chains is growing, this work aims to integrate the perspective of freshwater resources into supply network configuration. Focusing on the agrifood sector, we have developed a mixed-integer linear programming model that can be used to minimize the operational costs under a water footprint cap in a wine supply chain network by selecting the optimal suppliers (vine growers), manufacturing sites (winemakers), and transportation modes (fuel-powered trucks). The optimization outcomes unveil that the wine network's configurations (struc-ture and fuel type) vary significantly depending on the values of the water footprint cap so as to balance the trade-off between economic and water-related environmental efficiency. Beyond the viticulture sector, the proposed model is anticipated to act as a paradigm for setting joint sustainable targets or caps to limit water use across supply chains.
... Most researchers (e.g., Garcia et al., 2012;Supply Chain Council, 2017) find that the primary measure of the reliability of the supply chain is a perfect order, which is calculated using Eq. (1): ...

Supplier reliability and order fulfilment performance are usually assessed using a perfect-order calculation. Information management of perfect-order estimation is frequently reduced to expert estimates and to the multiplication of probabilities of failure-free performance of some logistics operations. Moreover, perfect-order estimation is calculated without consideration of supply chain structure, possible combinations of failures, and operational policies (e.g., safety stock levels and alternative transportation routes). As a result, the existing methods frequently provide different estimates for the same statistics and cannot be consistently used in the allocation of companies’ resources to improve the order fulfilment process. This paper considers different variants of probabilistic assessment of a perfect order and proposes an approach to assess the impact of changes in parameter probabilities and number of parameters on the value of a perfect order. The proposed models are based on an analytical approach using discrete distributions of random variables. We illustrate the applicability of our approach to several numerical examples to confirm the adequacy of the proposed method. Our approach can be immediately applied in practice to assess supply and order fulfilment process reliability and to evaluate the effectiveness of various operational policies (safety stock levels or modes of transportation) to achieve some planned values of a perfect order in the supply chain.
... Customer service, an essential measure of logistics performance, was often mentioned in previous logistics studies (Fawcett and Cooper, 1998;Wang, 2018). Cost is always used as a key indicator of logistics performance (Christopher, 1998;Fawcett and Cooper, 1998;Garcia et al., 2011), while some other studies focus on service quality such as environment, reliability and accuracy (e.g. on-time delivery, damage, disruptions) (Irene Gil et al., 2008;Stank et al., 1999;Khan, 2019). ...

The study aims to provide an in-depth analysis of a transportation capacity shortage issue affecting Australian logistics service providers. Transportation capacity shortage is an important issue in all transportation modes. In this study, the driver shortage is viewed as an antecedent variable to estimate the impact of transportation capacity shortage on logistics performance. This study investigates the underlying relationships between driver shortage, logistics capability, and logistics performance according to resource-based theory. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was used to analyze the measurement models and structural model. The empirical results illustrate that driver shortage indirectly influences logistics performance, the logistics capability is a mediator factor in the relationship between driver shortage and logistics performance in logistics service providers. We argue that this provides valuable insights for transportation capacity shortage management.
... In the latter one, the inefficiencies are: 57% micro downtime, 16% setup, 16% defects and 10% other sources. Furthermore, Garcia et al. (2012) report, in the benchmarking study they conducted for six wineries located in Mendoza, Argentina, that the filling line capacity use was between 50% and 90%. However, the winery that reported a 90% filling line capacity use had the second longest production time cycle and less overseas clients than the winery that had a 50% filling line capacity use. ...

Planning and scheduling the multiple bottling lines of large wineries can significantly increase or reduce inventory cost and bottling lines operating costs. It also determines how well they meet their clients' demand, which is critical for wineries. A good plan must consider demand, labour availability, bottling and labelling lines capacities, and the required materials. It also must ensure that the product is available on time, simultaneously keeping finished product inventory as low as possible, and efficiently using the lines and labour. For this, the planner must consider a large number of parameters, like customer orders, the lines’ production and labour capacities, bottling supplies availability, storage capacity, and labour costs. Furthermore, bottling wine has sequence-dependent set-up times. Changing from bottling red wine to white requires twice the set-up time needed to change from white to red, due to line cleaning. This makes planning and scheduling multiple bottling lines a complex process. We developed two models to support this process for a large winery: a basic one and one that generates more robust plans. Since solving this problem is difficult, we devised a decomposition algorithm that takes advantage of the different set-up types to reduce the time required to solve large problem instances. The results showed cost reductions of approximately 15% to 30% on test problems. We could also generate more robust plans without a significant cost increase. The model and solution approach were used to implement a decision support system for a large winery .
... Innovativeness and the effects of innovation represent an ongoing challenge in practice with further need for research and insights (Giuliani et al., 2017;Granata et al., 2019;Le Roy et al., 2018;Lubell et al., 2011;Moore & Benbasat, 1991). The proclaimed far reaching transformation in the wine industry from a product to a customer-centric business model (Dressler & Paunović, 2019Sánchez-Hernández et al., 2010) requires a systemic innovation in order to increase innovation capacity (Jørgensen & Ulhøi, 2010) and further exploration of innovation and innovators (F. A. Garcia et al., 2012;R. Garcia & Calantone, 2002). ...

In order to provide needed orientation of innovation management in the SME wine industry, a multi-case study was realized. The innovation activities of four German wineries for their entire value-creation coverage were analysed. The focus of the study was on an apparent challenge whether wineries should emphasise viticultural (back-end) or marketing and sales (front-end) innovations. The results of the four cases analysed suggest that innovation matters, strategic positioning influences each wineries' innovation portfolio, winery size and organization impact the innovation portfolio, resource dependency offers can be reduced through cooperative action at the industry level, and smaller producers must leverage their entrepreneurial orientation. All integrated wine producers need to address front-and back-end innovation, but with flexibility for innovation accentuation and individual innovation portfolios. Wineries also need to recognize the synergetic value of two different challenges: (1) convincing products require optimal planting and farming whereas (2) the product assortment and its treatment should consider customer profiles. Hence, front-and back-end innovations need to be synchronized and considered in parallel, without ignoring each winery's strategic accents and therefore individualization of the innovation portfolio. A synergetic innovation approach, exploiting technology and data mining, can foster the development of competencies and best practices when using existing wine industry resources and capabilities. Knowledge exchange at the industry-level helps producers reach consensus on innovation activities, goals, and strategies, and to improve the business ecosystem by identifying elements that are obsolete or ripe for change.

... Timeliness is closely related to the workflow and efficiency of receiving, sorting, and sending, especially choosing the mode of transportation (Yang & Wang, 2019). Timeliness can be considered in four dimensions: total logistics cycle time, total production cycle time, delivery cycle time, and new demand response time (Garcia et al., 2012). The total logistics cycle time is the average time between placing an order, and the moment the order reaches the customer's location. ...

With the recent developments in technology, globalization, and COVID 19 pandemic, the volume of e-commerce logistics activity has been growing rapidly. However, a literature review for this study indicated that there is a lack of research on commerce logistics service quality. This study intends to fill this gap in the literature. It aims to identify the e-commerce logistics service quality factors that affect customer satisfaction. It is also interested in identifying if there is any relationship between the satisfaction of e-commerce customers and their loyalty. Data from 1562 e-commerce customers living in Turkey were collected via a web-based survey. The results were analysed using structural equation modelling. Timeliness, order condition, order accuracy, and order discrepancy handling were found to have a positive effect on customer satisfaction. A positive relationship between customer satisfaction and customer loyalty was also found.
... Due to the fact that wine produced in different regions of the world has unique organoleptic characteristics, a need has arisen to consume wine from a region other than that of the consumer's residence. This need made it necessary to create increasingly complex and complex supply chains with many links (Garcia et al. 2012). An extremely important link in the entire supply chain is the link that supplies the finished product, wine. ...

ISBN: 978-963-449-271-9 This paper aims to check whether the GDP has a relationship with exports of goods and services and imports of goods and services in Palestine. An econometric model is built to examine the direct relations between the three variables exports, imports, and economic growth of Palestine. To achieve this purpose, yearly data for the period (2007-2020) were tested using Gretl. OLS, Engle-Granger Cointegration, and Causality tests are utilized. The results show that there is no relationship between the three variables in Palestine. However, there is strong evidence of the relationship between exports and economic growth in Palestine.
